Derek Dooley, Lord of the Pants.

Two legends seemed to grow bigger during last Saturday's Tennessee win over Cincinnati in Knoxville. One was the Vols' star quarterback, Tyler Bray, whose performance against the Bearcats earned him the honor of being named SEC Offensive Player of the Week. The other involved Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley's orange pants, which he wore for the second game in a row.

For now, His Hairness is discounting the power of the pants in regards to the Vols' 2-0 record. Saying that it would "be a game-time decision" if he wore them on the field this Saturday when Tennessee travels to Gainesville to face Florida in what is slowly becoming major SEC East showdown game. "That's the last thing I'm worried about," Dooley responded in a weekly press conference. "I can assure you the orange slacks aren't the reason we're winning,"

Even so, as this Knoxville News Sentinel video will attest, some of Dooley's players are buying into their coach's fashion sense.
